I absolutely love Wellington because it’s so close to so many beautiful nature walks and so much scenery. I live right in the city centre and it’s just a 15 minute walk till I’m at a mountain or if I go 20 minutes in the other direction I’ll find myself in the botanical gardens. As much as I need to live in the city because of the convenience (work), I can feel so suffocated sometimes. I’m def not a big city kinda person at all.. I’d much prefer to live out in a forest or something. Wellington really gives that perfect median that suites my lifestyle at the moment perfectly.
This lovely little hike was just a train ride away... just absolutely stunning. Nothing better than a weekend spent exploring and getting into nature. I remember having the biggest smile on my face the whole time. I just felt so present and grateful. That feeling is what I aim to feel every second.
